If a consumer client sends a UDP packet to an enterprise, what needs  
upgrading?
A domestic NAT box presumably with let the packet out.  Is the problem  
a user inside a corporate firewall?

The commercial enterprise which is monitoring will be able to do what  
is has to do to get the UDP packets, surely.

Which side were you worried about, specifically?
